The Secret Canyon: Utah

Range Creek canyon in Utah long held a secret that became public only when a rancher sold his land to the state – well-preserved remains from when the Fremont people lived here 1000 years ago.

Range Creek, rising in the Book Cliffs in Emery County, Utah, is a high tributary of the Colorado River. It flows into the Price River near Price, Utah. The Price then flows into the Green River, a major tributary of the Colorado. The creek flows year around.

It has been nominated for classification as a National Wild and Scenic River. The Range Creek canyon has recently become publicized because of its pristine archaeological remains and rock art of the Fremont culture, a Native American archaeological culture that was geographically and chronologically adjacent to the Anasazi culture.
